HAMPTON, VA (WAVI) – It’s been more than a month since four-year-old Cody Biggsby was reported missing from his home in Hampton, and community members want to make sure his name doesn’t turn into a cherished thought of busy lives.
On Saturday night, a small group gathered on the Hampton football fields to “light the way home” for the little one. The fields are next to the Buckroe Pointe apartment, where Biggsby was last reported to have lived. A tribute grew along the fence with chains, complete with dozens of stuffed animals, balloons and a giant poster.
This is where Shana Clark of Newport News decided to invite people to come together to light a candle.
“Cody lights the way home. We didn’t give it up, ”Clark said.
On the morning of January 31, Cody’s disappearance was reported by his father, Corey Bigsby. However Since then, Hampton police have asked everyone who saw Cody for the last three months, which is mid-November to come forward.
According to police, 43-year-old Corey Bigsby is the only person interested in Cody’s disappearance. Although he has not been charged with his disappearance, Corey Bigsby is currently in jail on seven counts of child neglect for allegedly leaving his children home alone several times while running errands.
Police said five-year-old and two-year-old twins lived in the house with Cody.
Police have not received any information about the investigation for several weeks, but Chief Mark Talbat at the recent town hall has redoubled the efforts of his detectives.
“I have never invested more resources in the business than I have invested in this business in my career. This child deserves it, “Talbat said last Friday.” I could give you more directions if the people who said they loved Cody Biggsby gave us more directions. “
Clark said she was disappointed with the boss. She has a 10-year-old daughter and she is embarrassed by the lack of information.
“This child was almost non-existent. No school, no medicine, no friends, no neighbors, people who live nearby can’t tell when they last saw this child? ” said Clark. “We won’t always know everything they do. You have to trust and work together. The community must work together. “
Clark said it was important to her that people didn’t forget about Bigsby.
“Again, if he’s missing, if he’s missing, you know, if he’s not dead, then he’s there, and people need to know,” Bigsby said.
